TOS of Discovering Theravada

Post by Reductor » Sat Jan 10, 2015 8:15 am

Hey,

You should mention in the terms on the "Discovering Theravada" forum that even edits need moderator approval. As an habitual over-editor, I was surprised that my first edit on a recent post sent the entire post back the the mods. I'm pretty sure this is a new(ish) action that may have come with the recent upgrades.

It may not be a bad idea, even though it is a pain in tookus, to keep it as is, given that we do occasionally have people doing more with their editing than just correcting misspelling, missed commas, and occasional word salad.

I agree that it's likely a good thing to keep, and had wondered before why a limit to editing in that forum wasn't imposed. So keep it, I say, so long as you and the other mods are down with it. And mention it in the TOS. Hopefully then people will use the preview button more (as I should, I know) and not make pains of themselves.
